Jones County Regional Center

Jones County Regional Center

At approximately 30,000 square feet, the Jones County Regional Center houses state-of-the-art classrooms, career and technical labs for academic programs, and administrative offices.

In addition to serving traditional and adult college students, the Center helps area high school juniors and seniors to take advantage of college-level courses, Career Academy programs, advanced high school curriculum, and a wealth of other educational possibilities.

Located just northeast of the Highway 151 and County Road X-44 intersection, the center occupies eight acres in Monticello, strategically located near the midpoint between Cedar Rapids and Dubuque.

Kirkwood’s Jones County Regional Center features innovative programming provided through partnerships with several local high schools. The unique cooperation gets high school students hands-on career experience and transferrable college credit at NO COST to families! 

The center includes all the resources adult learners need to succeed at Kirkwood. Find information about classes, advisors who can help you make the right decisions, and much more! 

Start off closer to home! Traditional students can start toward any of our 130+ degree programs by taking general education courses at Jones County Regional Center. 

Meet Our Staff


I provide administrative oversight for the Jones County Regional Center and  the Cedar County Center. I also manage development of the three Regional Centers that are being developed in Linn County, Washington County, and Iowa City, as well as supporting and collaborating with all of the Center Directors and Assistant Directors.


I support and provide supervision for all Kirkwood programs and services at the Jones County Regional Center. These programs include; college credit instruction, concurrent high school enrollment programs, student services, and continuing education general interest and other continuing professional development programs. I also provide assistance, as needed, to the Kirkwood High School Completion and Alternative High School Program at the facility. I collaborate with other Kirkwood departments, partnering school districts and other community stakeholders. Other duties include hiring and overseeing JREC faculty, student advising, serving as an ADA case manager, and assisting students with financial aid questions.


I’ve worked at the Jones County Regional Center since 2001. I assist students with accommodations for disabilities, financial aid, and registration. I also support our Dean, Assistant Director, Career Development Coordinator, and instructors.


I work with our seven partnering high schools to educate students, parents, and counselors about the benefits of earning college credit while in high school. Assisting students with the transition to postsecondary education or careers is another aspect of my job. Advising students with course registration and financial aid are other responsibilites I perform.


I work with students who are pursuing an adult high school diploma, need to earn high school credits, or are studying for their High School Equivalency Diploma. I also teach Personal Achievement Math and Personal Achievment Writing for college credit.


I enjoy assisting students in all areas of career development. My personal mission is to educate students about the career development process so that they can make good career decisions throughout their life.
